Orange Ales – Spring TX

Original Recipe

Similar to my NEIPA recipes, I wanted to produce something more geared toward a competition judge’s palate. So, here I came up with a recipe that sort of blended what I know about true-to-style IPAs while still adding some of my personal touch to the finished beer. Check it out!

For anyone wondering about the knockout edition – I use a 108º whirlpool for 30 minutes. This recipe is my standard practice of just that.

Notes

Flame out hops - had some mosaic and citra left over from 15 minute addition. So I dumped them in the whirlpool. 80 grams total.
Added 80 grams of Tam's sugar of tartar into whirpool too.

    Congratulations!!! Looking forward to making this one for sure. Can you elaborate on the Notes comment regarding Mosiac and Citra flameout hop addition?

    • Thanks! I’m happy to elaborate but it’s not Citra or Mosaic lol. I did my usual 108° for 30 min on this one for the WP/knockout. I like adding higher IBUs earlier in the boil for a more rounded flavor, which you already know. The whirlpool is more about getting that sticky goodness into the fermenter.
